My mistake to mark as duplicate, is different issue, but still maybe related to Bug 449356
Comment 4 Keve Gabbert 2009-05-04 21:07:57 EDT
Has Adam seen this issue with 4.7 or 4.8?
If it is not of interest to RH, RH person should close it.

BTW, Weybridge is the correct spelling.
Comment 6 Ronald Pacheco 2009-05-05 08:34:20 EDT
Santa Rosa was never supported on RHEL4.
Comment 7 Ronald Pacheco 2009-05-05 08:37:17 EDT
Weybridge was never supported on RHEL4 either.
Comment 8 Keve Gabbert 2009-05-05 09:51:28 EDT
Thanks, I should have remembered that.
Closing this BZ as won't fix.
